Distance: 3.5 miles round trip
Elevation gain: nothing significant
The Mossy Glen Trail hugs the bank of picturesque Peters Kill Creek. We will have to cross Peters Kill Creek on rocks, as the bridge is still out from hurricane Irene. Bring water shoes if you have them, in case the water is high and covers the rocks. Hike will be done at a relaxed pace - no one will be left behind. The aim is enjoyment by everyone, not speed! If the group wants to, we may extend the hike a bit by doing a piece of the Blueberry Run Trail. By the way, the reason for the early start time is that the Minnewaska parking lots can fill up quickly in the summer.
What to bring: $8 per car park entry fee, plenty of water, snacks, bug repellent
